There is no shortage of new places to eat here in Cedar Rapids!

According to a new Facebook post from Midtown Station, one of my favorite local restaurants, a new eatery is set to hold its soft opening this week over in the NewBo area. Operated by the Nanke Group, the restaurant is called Crosby's and is located at 1028 3rd St SE. The space where Crosby's is located was previously occupied by the Pig & Porter, which closed its doors in the summer of 2019 after three years in business.

If you're wondering what you can expect from Crosby's, the official website reads:

"Crosby's is a New American restaurant & cocktail bar situated in the heart of the NewBo Neighborhood in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Its beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows, friendly-charm and delicious cuisine will make it a hot spot home for foodies all around."

Some of the items mentioned online include crab-stuffed walleye, brie cheese appetizers, and burgers. They also plan to add brunch, which is set to debut on Saturday, December 11th. You can check out some sneak peek photos of menu options HERE.

Crosby's will be having their soft opening beginning tomorrow, December 1st through Friday, December 3rd from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. You can follow the Facebook page for the latest updates HERE.

Just yesterday, we told you about another new restaurant that recently opened in Cedar Rapids called Izumi Sushi & Hibachi. Izumi is located at 221 2nd Ave SE in the former Wasabi Sushi restaurant. You can read all about it HERE.
